Hello! I am an aspiring author, currently traveling in India. My days consist of yoga, writing, meditation, writing, eating, writing, hiking, writing, sleeping, and writing! I am practicing like crazy, and enjoying every minute of it. I have switched to Hub Pages because it would be great to start making money doing what I love to do. I write stories about the people I meet, the strange things I see, dreams I have, and any and all poetry that comes to inspire me. Much of the writing I am posting has been done in the last four months, since my travels began in Thailand, and I will contine to post as I cross India, move into Nepal, and return to Thailand. Thank you for reading, and if you feel so inspired, click one of the links on my page, and help me make a few bucks!!!

Happy reading,

Sarah

    Walk up the steep, honking hill to the tiny temple at the top.  Pass through the throbbing throngs of people, and under the golden gates.  Kick off your shoes and emerge into sunlight.  Here, people stream in and out like ants, chaotic, constant,...

    I want to tell you about a remarkable person I know.  Many of you know him.  His name is Drew.  I don’t know why I’m writing this now, as opposed to before, or now, as opposed to later.  I guess the inspiration is just here, and it feels...
